The FCC granted to Sprint Nextel Corporation (Nextel) the right to reclaim a portion of the spectrum in the 2 GHz band from broadcasters across the country. In order to claim this spectrum, Nextel was required to replace all of the broadcasters’ electronic newsgathering equipment using this spectrum with digital equipment capable of operating in the reformatted portion of the 2 GHz band retained by the broadcasters. This exchange of equipment was completed on a market by market basis. As the equipment was exchanged and placed into service in each of the Company’s markets, a gain was recorded to the extent that the fair market value of the equipment received exceeded the book value of the analog equipment exchanged.

During the year ended September 30, 2010, the fair market value of the equipment received and placed into service was $2,591. This amount was recorded as an addition to property, plant and equipment, but is not included in capital expenditures in the accompanying consolidated statement of cash flows as no cash was involved in the exchange. The excess of fair market value as compared to the book value of equipment exchanged and placed into service of $2,591 for the year ended September 30, 2010 was recorded as a non-cash gain in other, net nonoperating income in the accompanying consolidated financial statements. There were no exchanges during the years ended September 30, 2011 and 2012.
